that when he was quoted as saying that in an interview in the star tribune that he was quoting david brooks from a david brooks column. that particular quote was taken out of context, pawlenty argued and the newspaper issued a clarification. but if you read the interview, pawlenty talked -- >> the sentiment was factual. >> very much. and government needs to be more active. >> we know you're going to be some pawlenty statements, later today, you'll have some some of the pawlenty barbs back and forth. i have noticed it's actually gotten more truthful around here, why is that? >> in the debt debate there's been more responsible dialogue. >> you've got to be kidding me, irresponsible abilities to get things done, but the dialogue's been responsible? >> the truth index is flirting with positive territory. >> how about that, bill adair, editor-in-chi editor-in-chief. >>> it is only wednesday, the hump day panel is going to talk about developing news, we just talked about the cbo scoring of the harry reid plan. and is mitt romney counting his chickening before the hatch. and they heated it up and

hinton in the british job, rebekah brooks resigned this morning. potentially next on the chopping block, somebody even closer to him, rupert murdoch's own son james who has been busy not explaining himself, paying off phone hacking victims on the side. this is a damaging scandal. but that leaves some of the as-yet surviving parts of his media empire in the position of having to cover their boss' really big problem. when that kind of thing goes badly, that kind of thing goes really, really badly. i have seen a lot of amazing things come out of the morning show program on the fox news channel, but although i will admit of having low expectations of howç the fox news channel morning show would handle the murdoch scandal story, i never anticipated it would look like this. >> rebekah brooks has now resigned as chief executive of our parent company's british news corporation. this morning we're finding out the pentagon suffered one of its largest hacking events ever, a psycher theft of more than 125,000 files. the pentagon says they were stolen by a foreign government. what do you make of t

and not willing to do. >> let me read something that david brooks wrote today in "the new york times." he was writing about republicans and primarily house republicans and he said quote, they do not believe in seizing opportunities to make steady messy progress towards conservative goals, but they believe that politics is a cataclysmic struggle and they can remain pure in the faith and in some day their party can win over their foes. >> he is not a conservative, but he is describing the position of some of my colleagues in that, and sometimes in the debates and usually it is off-channel and not in the public debate of how we get to perfection and i hear debates to say don't accept the lesser of two evils which happens in political races as well as in policy decisions. my argument is that we have the take what we can get when we can get it and we have to use the leverage that we have when we the opportunity to do so, and my regret of where we stand today is that we weren't willing to use the leverage of the continuing resolution debate as far as i think that we should have gone, and i'm co

are refusing to play along. joining me is republican congressman mo brooks from alabama, a tea party freshman, an original co-sponsor of the cut, cap and balance bill. congressman, this bill is being debated on the floor now. it would roll back spending to 1966 levels, i believe. it's so extreme that even the ryan budget would be unconstitutional, and it protects tax cuts for the rich and corporations. how is that a balanced approach, if your view? >> i respectfully disagree with your characterization of it. quite frankly, in fy-12, all it cuts is roughly 11.5 billion dollars. that means it's only addressing 7% of the problem in fy-12. we would all like to spend money on programs, but in order to do that you have to have the money in hand. >> no question about it, congressman. >> we simply do not have the money to spend on all the things -- >> i think you're doing a great job of telling us the budget, but why don't you answer my question. how do you protect the rich and corporations in the bill and call that shared sacrifice or balanced approach? >> well, i disagree with your characterization

that hitting the debt ceiling, oh, that won't hurt a bit, who cares? republican congressman mo brooks of alabama told the washington post this week that on the contrary, all credit rating should be improved by not raising the debt ceiling, which is like saying you're looking forward to how that sledge hammer is going to improve your dental work. another congressman says after a catastrophic default and financial crisis the government can just move some money around to fix things for awhile. "that wouldn't work for just a few days, that would work for a few years" adding it's an arrogant attitude to take. republican congressman tim wahlberg of michigan in agreement, he told the washington post it's time to "hold the line," but which he means we should default, just go for it. republican allen west of florida says president obama is fearmongering on the debt ceiling that it's nothing to be afraid of. republicans are not alone on this. >> this is a misnomer that i believe the president and the treasury secretary have been trying to pass aufz on the american people, and it's this, that if

the editorial board of the "wall street journal" today to david brooks to charles krautheimer who have written basically they need to get on board with john boehner. if he is able to get the votes, then what happens next, congressman? >> well, again, that bill, the boehner plan's dead on arrival in the senate. i know the president's not%fgq g to accept it, because we're not going to go through it again in six months. and so i think they'll dipose of it, the way they dipoed of the constitutional amendment, the balanced budget amendment in the senate, and then the question will become whether they can craft anything, get 60 votes and get something that will pass over here. i think the reid plan probably would get almost every democratic vote, and so we'd need 50 votes, maybe 40 votes, from republicans to pass it. that's a viable possibility, but i'm really not sure that right now if mitch mcconnell stands firm and is able to keep his members in line, that's going to be a tough sell in the senate. and that leads the president alone to come to the rescue, and i'm one of those among the democrats h

of that spending. i just don't think that's asking a lot. >> what david brooks wrote last week, interestingly, and certainly some republicans took note of it because david brooks is well known and well respected in republican and democratic circles as a "new york times" writer. he said if the republican party were a normal party, it would take advantage of this amazing moment. it is being offered the deal of the century, trillions of dollars in spending cuts in exchange for a few hundred billion dollars of revenue increases. and there have been bipartisan and nonpartisan groups that have suggested it would be $400 billion of loophole closures that could be affected without calling it in effect a tax increase. >> well, our budget which was passed last april, proposed to close all these loopholes in exchange for tax reform. so we were the first to call for closing all these corporate tax loopholes to lower our tax rates, to create jobs. so nobody should hold a candle to us on wanting to close loopholes. we have been saying that forever. it's just all the spending cuts, we have yet to see specif
